Celebrating special events at Della Vita is a unique experience, Diane Hawkbaker wrote in this five-star Facebook review.
“Love, love, love this wine bar," she wrote. "All the wines I tried were great. It is so nice to try a splash of wine and not purchase an entire bottle. The owner asked us what we were doing today and we told him we were celebrating our anniversary and he brought us an entire plate of Stam chocolates. ... You have to try this!”

“I have wanted to check this place out for some time and finally got the opportunity," she wrote. "I really liked the atmosphere, from the variety of seating options to the great music selection playing and it was just loud enough to enjoy, but you didn't have to shout to have a conversation.”
